Instead of using a lip balm which contains petroleum jelly, why not treat yourself to a wonderful alternative to Vaseline for lips with an organic, natural petroleum-free lip balm.
Eating your lipstick
Before you pucker up give a thought to the lip care products you use. If you use lipstick every day, you will have eaten at least one by the end of the year! Although you don’t intentionally eat your lipstick, every time you lick your lips you consume a little of your favourite lip product. So that’s why you should seriously consider upgrading your lip care products to natural or organic.
Natural and organic lip care
Organic and natural make-up has progressed loads in the last few years and there’s a whole range of different products in a rainbow selection of colours to choose from. Whether you want a statement red lip or a nude, barely-there look, you will find a product for you in the ever-increasing range of natural products which offer colour and treatment. So for the sake of your lips and the person you’re kissing, ditch the chemicals, preservatives, mineral oil, artificial colours and synthetic fragrances in conventional beauty brands and treat your lips to something so much better.
Here I give you some of the best petroleum-free lip balms and I’ve chosen ones which come in a range of packaging such as twist-up tube, squeezy tube with applicator, metal tin and plastic tub. Hopefully, there’s a non-petroleum lip balm brand here for everyone.
Flying Wild Organic Beeswax Lip Balm
Packaging: Twist-up tube
Flying Wild’s lip balm is a relatively new organic lip product which is handmade in Ireland using beeswax from their own hives to really nourish your lips. I particularly love the addition of rosemary as it gives it an uplifting fragrance. If you want to support a small business, this could be the petroleum-free lip balm for you. Find out more about Flying Wild’s lip balm in my review.

Balm Balm Rose & Geranium Lip Balm
Packaging: Glass jar with plastic lid (also available in fragrance-free and tea tree versions)
Rose and geranium is one of my favourite fragrances so this is another of my top organic lip balms. Shea butter and beeswax moisturise your lips and anywhere else you fancy using it.
Where to buy Balm Balm
These two natural beauty online retailers sell Balm Balm and other lip balms without petroleum.
- Only Naturals – £7.50
Gem’s Extreme Lip Balm 5ml / Gem’s Lip Conditioning Balm 15ml
Gem’s Extreme Lip packaging: twist-up tube
Gem’s Lip Conditioning Balm: metal tin
Both of these are petroleum jelly-free lip balms so they make a great natural alternative to Vaseline for lips.
Although I haven’t tried either of these products, they’re on my shopping list as I am so impressed with Gem’s Dry Skin Balm (read my review of Gem’s Dry Skin Balm).
Spiezia Organic Lip Balm 10ml
Packaging: metal tin
This 100% organic lip balm nourishes and softens lips with a combination of beeswax and coconut oil. It also includes lemon peel and cinnamon leaf essential oils which have a natural lip plumping effect.

Weleda Tinted Lip Balms
I have to start with Weleda Tinted Lip Balms as they are one of my favourite products from a great natural beauty brand. Only launched in the spring, they have become one of my go-to products.
